Hi!

I'm Varvara Nedilska, a Ukrainian Canadian multidisciplinary artist and freelance illustrator living and working in Toronto, Canada. I love to draw and paint, and some of my biggest inspirations are medieval and surrealist art, the Flemish Renaissance, folk/“outsider” art and the natural world. I’m particularly interested in narrative-based work. Please feel free to get in touch with any comments or inquiries! 

I can be reached by email at varvaranedilska@gmail.com, and you can stay up to date with my pursuits on Instagram.
